Now that Summer is nearly here it is time to reflect on Spring and one word comes to mind, wet. We have had more than our fair share of thunderstorms and rain and this has meant numerous trail closures in the Fort Wayne area. On a positive note I am enjoying road riding more since I have been forced to abandon my usual routes around the area.
I recently started using the Dexcom G5 CGM to help with monitoring my blood glucose, although it is very expensive . It is a real help when I am out cycling since the graphs of blood glucose levels show trends, this can give me warning to eat something a lot sooner than before. If my BG goes too low an alarm sounds and this can be helpful during the night as well as when exercising. I have had some problems but all in all it is a positive thing I feel.
